2 April 2019 it is 40 years since the first JYSK store opened in Aarhus. Since then expansion has been a cornerstone in JYSK, and therefore the anniversary is celebrated with the opening of the company’s first store in Ireland.
The family owning Lars Larsen Group has after careful consideration decided to merge JYSK Nordic, which operates 1,287 stores in 20 countries, and Dänisches Bettenlager, which operates 1,283 stores in 7 countries, into one business unit.
Employees in the Czech Republic and Slovakia are very pleased with JYSK as an employer. This was confirmed when the company won the award “Best Employer 2018” in a big survey performed by the HR agency AON.
The new team in JYSK Ireland consists of many different nationalities. An internal Cross-culture JYSK Values and Leadership training was held in February, so the new colleagues could get to know JYSK and each other better before opening the first store on 2 April.
